First Review by alien.adam

fresh and tasty - Edit

Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, and seemed like most of menu was vegan from what I could see. Vegan lasagna, pizzas, pastas, gluten free specials, breakfast specials, lunch specials, something for everyone. I had a large taco made from linseed with sautéed mushrooms, spinach, and guacamole that was quite tasty and came with a simple yet delicious salad, and a herbal papaya drink, also good. Total was 26 solas which is slightly more expensive than some other local options for lunch, but likely because the ingredients are higher quality.

Pros: fresh, calm, nice atmosphere

Cons: cash only

Amazing! - Edit

I've come here nearly every day for the past week! The food is incredible, so many vegan options. The staff are lovely and there's also great wifi if you need to work like me! They've even got a whole list of vegan deserts, which I keep getting too full from the main's to enjoy!!! The coffee is also good with both soy and almond milk and they're always playing great music. It's a lovely little walk up some old paved lanes with the Andes in the background. I really love this place : )

Pros: Great tasting food, Great choice, Lovely customer service

Pros: Many options, friendly staff and some nostalgic 90, Reasonable prices.

Cons: Basic food, lack of dressings, though the salad wa
